    Default Spalling vent tile

    For future reference, what would cause this sort of spalling? NW corner, the interior was in good condition. Manufacturing defect?

    Moisture getting into the terracotta. Could be from several factors. A common one I have seen is under fired clay. They simply do not get the tiles hot enough when they are fired. Age can also be a factor.
